Faded Paper Figures
Faded Paper Figures
Faded Paper Figures is an American Second Wave synthpop band from Los Angeles, California. FPF is known for their electro-organic sound often compared to bands like The Postal Service, Passion Pit, Stars, and Morrissey. The band consists of three main members, R. John Williams (guitar and vocals), Kael Alden (bass, guitar, drums, synths), and Heather Alden (vocals and synths). They are joined live by drummer Kurt Deninger and bassist/keyboardist Sebastian Hackett. The band formed in 2007 and released their debut album "Dynamo" in 2008 to great acclaim. Since then they have gone on to release two more albums, "New Medium" in May 2010, and recently "The Matter" on Oct 23rd 2012. Each new release has seen the band stretch their sonic palate combining glitched-out synth riffs with a rock driven foundation.
Cinderella Motel
Cinderella Motel
LA-bred Cinderella MOTEL combines the eclectic madness of 70’s punk, the amped-up attitude of garage rock, and the sly sensibilities of 80’s pop to create an outfit never seen around the LA scene, at least not like this. CM creates a captivating wave of sound by melting eccentric audio arrangements, breakneck tempo changes, and subversively carnal and profoundly whimsical lyrics with JFR’s wailin
g guitars, Guerrero’s thunderous drum chops, Robles’ thick-filled bass licks, and Tomahawk’s full-force growling, howling yet lady-like vocals, crunchy rhythm guitar, and occasional punk-styled accordion.
CM’s first full-length release bolts straight out the gate with the bombastic title track ‘Automatic Pleasure.’ With songs like the horns-in-the-air, Sabbath-invoking ‘Clearance Valentine,’ the accordion-laced, punk barn burner ‘Put It Out’ and the hedonistic pleasure anthem ‘You Were Never My Boyfriend (So Let’s Dance),’ Cinderella MOTEL provides the soundtrack for all of us who want to live life with the knob cranked to eleven.
The album was recorded at The Cave Studio in LA by LightFM frontman Josiah Mazzaschi (William Reid-The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Blood Arm, Built to Spill) and mastered by Jon Drew in Toronto (Metric, F**ked Up, Tokyo Police Club).
Basically, if Iggy, Joan Jett, The Kills and Peaches had a baby backed by the Sioux nation, you'd have Cinderella MOTEL.

“Cinderella Motel’s thrashy old-school squalor owes a huge debt to black-dressed songstresses of the past — fans of Siouxsie Sioux and Joan Jett, take note — with frontwoman Tammy Tomahawk juggling guitar and accordion and howling at ghosts wearing studded belts and leather collars. Or maybe they’re not ghosts at all. The quartet, working on a full-length scheduled for a fall release, features thundering rhythms from bassist Dustin Robles and drummer Raul Guerrero, and appropriately shreddy licks from lead guitarist Janice Reid. L.A. once thrived on a steady diet on a steady diet of post-punk like Cinderella Motel’s; now we have only occasional side dishes to make you scream like a banshee.” –Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands.la

The Georgia Sand
The Georgia Sand
The Georgia Sand is an indie rock band from Los Angeles. Comprised of members of Strictly Ballroom, Dntel, Athalia, The Minor Canon, Le Switch & Strange Parade.

They are currently in the studio recording their debut album, due out in spring 2013.
The Long Fall
The Long Fall
Hanging its star on lush harmonies, and sweeping melodies,The Long Fall is the soundtrack to late- nights, longing, and epic drives down the coast. The sound of both the sun and the shadows, this is Americana/ pop.

The Long Fall is Amy Rieckelman (songwriter, vocals, guitar), Annie Brown (vocals, cello), Rob Polachek (saxophone). The band's current demos (available on Soundcloud) were produced and engineered by Stefano Bonzi, Justin Sconza (Walter Meego) and Anthony Polcino (Beat Club).
Nightgown
Nightgown
Nightgown is the project of LA based singer/songwriter Laurel Noone. Originally hailing from the colorful port city of Baltimore where she studied opera, Laurel now focuses her energies into writing sweeping and dreamy melodic rock. Her music reflects elements of 90's shoegaze, folk, and garage rock, giving her sound an ethereal softness with a rough edge. She'll be joined by Nick Perez (Sad Robot, For the Record) on electric, Jake Rosenzweig (The Sogo Takeover, Stupid Man Suit, Lumber Party) on bass, and Bobby Halvorson (King and the Cattail, Jomama Jones) on drums. She is currently self-producing a Nightgown EP to be digitally released in 2013.
